      Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

      I am always trying new nail polish but hate the way it chips. This base goes on easily, dries quickly, and works well with the polish and top coat. I'm impressed considering this isn't Ann expensive brand.

              Comments about Essence The Gel Nail Polish Base Coat:

              I was surprised by how much I like this. Usually i'm not one who cares for base coats - it seems like a waste of money and time to me, just to make it easier for me to peel the polish off. But it sticks very well, and it was only peely against my cuticles.
